for the jackson free press, specifically, staying on the mississippi voter i.d. story, when those of us up here in new york were having a heck of a time trying to follow the twists and turns of that mississippi voter i.d. story any other way. and we couldn't have done it without them. i'm thankful to the "miami herald" for keeping this great reporter, carol rosenberg, on the guantanamo beat, even when the country has largely turned away from that story. carol rosenberg's reporting is definitive and relentless, and it is a service to the country that the "miami herald" has kept her on that beat. i am thankful to the republicans and to the conservatives who will brave the people on their own side who tell them not to do it and who will nevertheless come talk to liberal hosts like me and the other liberal hosts like me here on msnbc. and yes, that means steve schmidt and michael steele and meghan mccain, who we've been able to bring on board officially here at this network, but also, everybody else on the right, who was willing to come on just as a guest, because you are not afraid to leave the ec
